Where DOI Employees Get Their Information





The Interior Library provides a full range of professional reference and research services, available to Interior employees in both the Washington, DC, area and nationwide. The collections include Departmental publications, as well as related books, journals, electronic databases and other resources that support the mission of the Department, its agencies, and bureaus.

A new temporary Interior Library is now open in Room 2262 of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building.  Due to the modernization of wing 1 of the building, the Interior Library's historic Reading Room and stack areas have been closed to patrons.

Federal Legislative History Research Using Library Resources

Wednesday, August 13, 2014, 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm


In order to find the legislative intent of a bill or public law, researchers need to compile reports, testimony, debate, and other materials related to that piece of legislation to find keys as to what Congress hoped to accomplish by passing the bill. The final compilation of all these materials provides the researcher with a "legislative history" of the bill or law in question and hopefully will answer the question of what Congress intended with this legislation.

Electronic Resources for Departmental Employees


Others must come to the Interior Library to use these databases, or contact a Reference Librarian for assistance.


Due to budget reductions imposed as a result of sequestration, the Library will no longer be able to provide access to EBSCO's Science & Technology Collection, EBSCO Online's Environment Complete, and the National Technical Reports Library databases after April 29, 2013. We will also no longer provide access to Westlaw at the Library Reading Room's patron workstations. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

The list combines the full-text journals and other periodicals in all the database services to which the Library has access. Also included are some single subscriptions as well as some journals freely available on the Internet. Most entries include coverage dates, and all entries have links directly to the journal.

Please direct your questions on database searching strategies to a Reference Librarian.
